Its 2016 and everyone not poor has an decent internet which gives access to crystal clear quality.
Why are some people still forcing the
>lel streaming anime,youre a pleb meme
>Crystal clear quality
Let me just leave these keywords here: encoding compression internet streaming daiz crunchyroll kissanime artifact
Streaming is not and will not be as good as downloading and watching. Crunchyroll still uses shitty, ineffective encoding, which makes the stream full of artifacts, where there is gradients.
Shouldnt you be moral-fagging going "why dont you plebs pay for anime? I support animeinstudtrrey by being brunchyroll member."
When TPP is finalized in 2 months and all anime streaing sites are blocked in both the EU and USA I will be laughing my ass off at the niggers incapable of torrenting taiwanese caricatures.
Good times are a comin. We'll purge the summershits once and for all with the help of the jews.
>he thinks his secret clubs will be safe
By the time they find one server the backup will be back on again.
And finding secret clubs takes time.
You normies are really fucked. You will have to pay for your shit from now on. Better learn to accept it.
Well how do you get invites if you're not friends with someone who can invite you in the first place?
There's always someone who decides to post invites on the internet. Just check for those.
>complain about shitposting
no it doesnt. Its even in the name
You know, I am a huge otaku and my favorite sites ARE crunchyroll and KissAnime™. There is nothing wrong with steaming if you do it at 720p or 1080p with fast (100mg/s) internet. Eventually, there should be 4K streaming and that will be even better!
There is no reason to waste time downloading anime when it's available instantly in a similar quality format. Stop fighting over this nonsense /a/

so much for the civilized world

Wouldn't this mean you would want to download more then?
It's the people with shit internet who stream
Why would you download some random shit that MIGHT be good even if it downloads quickly.
Subs and finding them is a hassle too
Stopped reading right there.
Do you streamfags need serious reasons? Most obvious is quality - inferior in bitrate, usually bears an ugly watermark and is often buffered lower than stated to fit your connection, but also:
>availability - it may take days or weeks for a stream to go up of a show you can torrent hours after it airs in Japan. Stream sites, even popular ones like crunchy, will not get every single show that airs a season. In fact with Funi doing this shit too now seasons are often heavily split across sites. It is stupid to stretch yourself across multiple sites when you can get everything automatically as torrents.
>no BDs or specials - usually streams are broadcasts of the airing ep, which can be significantly worse quality than BDs. You need to torrent the BDs to have the objective best quality. So even if you are a pleb/newfag catching up with very old anime hence don't care about being up to date by the hour with /a/, you are objectively better off avoiding streaming in favor of the best available versions.
If you do not care about anime enough to bother not having butchered half ass experiences with it then what the fuck are you even doing when the best stuff is at your fingertips? What, fear of takedowns? That shit will knock out stream sites before it gets to torrents. It always works that way for movies and TV shows as streams are the lowest hanging fruit; why would it not go that way for anime.
>b-but I support the industry paying for a plebstream. No, you fucking do not, you are paying for CR's servers and paying their translation staff. The licensing rights being bought comes in as a lump sum I believe, hence it is not additive based on individual subscriptions. All overhead after buying the licenses stays in CR pockets. They tell you what you want to believe to try to get you to buy it. Buy actual BDs, figures, merchandise etc as the way to really support the industry.
Lastly there is a stream /a/ accepts - live stream literally as it airs in Japan (no subs)
